I use Windows 7 but just added Outlook 2016 as a stand-alone feature. My GMail email is IMAP-configured, and I need to be able to categorize my emails according to color. I used to be able to do this when I had Outlook 2007, but the function no longer works in Outlook 2016.

Since IMAP supposedly does not allow for color categories, I read on slipstick about the workaround using keyboard shortcuts... Where assigning a shortcut to a color can trick accounts using IMAP to display a color: http://www.slipstick.com/outlook/outlook-categories-flags-and-imap-accounts/

However, while I am able to apply the shortcut and create new colors on emails I click on in my archived folders, the shortcut function still does not work in my GMail account. What could be the problem?

Many thanks for your help!

The macro is already available. You only need to paste it as described.
